Less is More colour challenge #375

Hello and happy Sunday!  It feels like ages since I played along with Less is More so I made time today to make a card for the current Tangerine and Olive colour challenge.  When I finished my card and photographed it I thought maybe it's more red than tangerine but then I realised there are different shades of tangerine so I'm happy with that.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL

I stamped the flower from CAS-ual Fridays Mon Ami and die cut it with the co-ordinating die.  I coloured it in with some Altenew artists markers.  I must admit I haven't used my Altenew markers very much but they are so beautiful I am going to find more time to play with them.  I stamped the stem and leaves directly onto my card panel and adhered my flower with dimensionals.  I coloured some white cardstock with the same Altenew marker and cut it into two strips and adhered them directly onto a top folding card base.  The card panel was adhered with foam tape.

NEW Craft Stash Blog Hop: DAY 2





No automatic alt text available.


Hello and welcome to my blog and day 2 of our New Craft Stash Blog Hop!  May I say I felt very honoured to be invited to join these very talented designers!!


I received some happy mail on Friday from the lovely Michele of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I have challenged myself to make some quick cards and I thought the Sassy Smiles stamp set would be perfect for these.  There are so many fun sentiments in this set!! (do what makes your guts grin!! LOL)

I placed the SMILE stamp into my MISTI and used three different colours of Catherine Pooler Inks, blending the colours as I went with a blending tool.  I learnt this trick from Catherine!  I stamped the sentiments underneath in Versafine Black Onyx ink, die cut the panel with a stitched frame and used some foam tape to mount onto a top folding card base.  The little hearts are from the same stamp set.

Hows that for some quick cards!











                                         Here's the stamp set I used and the CP Designs ink colours.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #203 Heat Embossing


No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  We have a heat embossing challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Blog this week.
We also welcomed  8 new talented designers to our challenge blog this week so make sure you pop over and check out all the inspiration.

 I never tire of watching the magic of heat embossing.  I white heat embossed the flowers from Pretty Posies onto Bristol card stock,  coloured them with my Zig Brush Markers and die cut them with the matching Posies Fri-Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Shenanigans in Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with  sparkle embossing powder.








                              




If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using heat embossing and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!


                                    

                                        Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

CAS-ual Fridays Fireworks Challenge #202


Image may contain: fireworks

Hello and happy Friday!  It is a beautiful sunny winters morning here in Australia, it looks like it's a perfect beach day until you step outside and feel the cold air!  Anyway enough about the weather, we have a fireworks challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog today.  Check out the inspiration photo and make a project with whatever inspires you from the picture.  I stamped the Full on Floral background stamp and white heat embossed it.  Then I sponged a mixture of different colours with CP inks over some of the flowers to give that fireworks effect.  I stamped my sentiment from the Shenanigans set onto a piece of vellum and attached it to my card panel.  I added a few die cuts from the Celebrate set and called it a day.






If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using the inspirational photo and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!

Geometrics challenge



Hello and happy Sunday!  My card today is for the AAA cards challenge #117.  The challenge is CAS Geometrics.  I have stamped the beautiful Kaleidoscope Background Stamps from Catherine Pooler Designs in black versafine ink and heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder.  Then I cut it into three strips so I can make three cards!  The butterfly is from Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday and I stamped it in black versafine and clear heat embossed it.  Then I coloured it in with Catherine Pooler Inks and a blender pen.  While I was at it, I made a pink one too and I added some Pink Lemonade sequins to the wings from Brittney Lee!
 There is a geometric challenge over at StampNation so if you're a member you will see my cards over there too.

The Flower Challenge #21



Hello, my card today is for the latest challenge over at The Flower Challenge.  The theme this month is to use a previous challenge.  I chose #7 from April 2017 which is a sketch.
I stamped the Kaleidoscope Background stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs in black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar white card stock and cut it into strips.  I stamped one of the flowers from the Wonderful Wildflowers stamp set (Catherine Pooler Designs) and die cut using the matching dies.  My sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday.
